Coda Blues Sessions

Fridays monthly
7.30pm to 9.30pm
£7 pay as you go

Next sessions 6th November, 4th December 

A monthly masterclass and blues jam, led by Jonathan Barry, introducing guitarists to the basic principles of melodic improvisation and soloing.

Knowledge of a standard 12 bar blues progression would be helpful but not essential, as one of the elements covered in the workshop will be the progression itself (as often the most well delivered solos come from those players who best understand the underlying harmony that is supporting them).

The only important prerequisite is the ability to play a simple pentatonic minor scale (1 b3 4 5 b7). This scale, plus variants of it, will be the basic note pool you will use to create your solos.
